HTML is how Web pages are structured. CSS is how Web pages are designed. Visual Quick Start Guide Css3 book deals primarily with how to use CSS to add a visual layer to the HTML structure of your Web pages.
CSS is a style sheet language; that is, it is not a programming language. Instead, it’s code that tells a device (usually a Web browser) how the content in a file should be displayed. CSS is meant to be easily understood by anyone, not just “computer people.” Its syntax is straightforward, basically consisting of rules that tell an element on the screen how it should appear.
Visual Quick Start Guide Css3 book also includes the most recent additions to the CSS language, commonly referred to as CSS3 (or CSS Level 3). CSS3 builds on and extends the previous version of CSS. For the time being, it’s important to understand what is new in CSS3 because some browsers (most notably Internet Explorer) have incomplete support or no support for these new features.

Chapter 2 deals briefly with HTML5, bringing you up to date on the latest changes. If you are already familiar with HTML, this chapter has everything you will need to get going.
